BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Mount This Fish Company in Rockledge is supporting Creative Cans in the Sand while avoiding waste.
Mount This Fish Company was established in 2001 and has been elevating the standards of fish mount replica production ever since
They use high quality materials, skilled fiberglass workers, and talented painters to produce a fish replica in a timely manner.
In the past, fish replicas use to take anywhere from 30-90 days to produce.
Mount This Fish Company strives to have popular items in stock along with offering a quick turnaround time for custom replicas.
“It hit me that a lot of times I waste primer that I mix for my fish and have left overs, so I’ve been using the extra on the cans each round of primer I do for our fish,” said Troy Denson, owner of Mount This Fish Company located at 4280 US 1 in Rockledge.
The mission of Creative Cans In The Sand is to help encourage beach-goers to dispose of their trash responsibility, and with the hopes that the more noticeable artistically painted cans will result in a cleaner, more litter-free beach.
“The first process for painting on a round rain barrel is a good base primer,” said Creative Cans in the Sand co-founder Bobby Freeman.
The Creative Cans In the Sand initiative was organized by Freeman and his wife Nikki, and the program is being endorsed and embraced by many volunteers, local and famous artists, the media and local businesses.
“Our beaches in Brevard are beautiful and Creative Cans In the Sand is determined to keep them that way,” said Nikki McCoy Freeman, a local Realtor.
As oceanfront residents and frequent beachgoers themselves, Bobby and Nikki knew firsthand the importance of keeping the beaches litter-free, and had often seen trash scattered around almost empty trash cans.
Then one day after a stroll down the beach, and a discussion about their love of art, they had the epiphany.
“We all share the beach,” said Denson. “It’s our responsibility to pick up after ourselves and respect Mother Nature. When I see weekend warriors leaving their trash behind I wish I could teleport into their living room and dump my trash can onto their sofa and ask them ‘How’s that feel?'”
